Description
This song started with improvisation on electric piano. The overdubs were done to see if I could get deeper into the song's heart.

dang this is really GOOD!
What can I say, this is supreme! Like heaven!
What I a joy this piece is!
It is hard for me to select any one thing about this tune because all of it
iso well done. From the flute sound, and all the keyboard sounds you
make done in a so well tempered manner. So soothing and pleasing. So
incredibly tastefully done.

A true Futz masterpiece in a high great style fashion!

If there was ever an easy listening classic, this is it. Textbook lush,

My god...
That was a strikingly beautiful tune. Unknowingly at first, it took my
stress level so way down, and I didn't even get a chance to put up a
good fight... It was very pleasant to listen to

Wow! Futzpucker. Maybe it's time to read your bio and see how you
ended up this way...

You seem to have mastered this kraft of creating soothing, perfectly
structured pieces. Well, you're two for two today... The arrangement
and the production on this is top of the top.

I'm tickeled that I discovered you this morning.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice!
I agree with everyone else here today, it's beautiful. A true piece of musicianship. It is very soothing and relaxing. The piano line reminds me of something I would sit a play myself. Good job!

Sweet!
So laid back it's horizontal fp!! This has to be the ultimate chill music
(its been a good day for that today on MJ). Warm and rich, short and
sweet. Goes down a bit like a sticky wine after a great meal. Thanks!

Yet Another...
wonderful melody, played with tender, soulful feeling and arranged with
skillful restraint.

This one, I think, would make a very nice mood piece for a cinematic
episode. Beautifully done.

Another excellent piece of work.

Damn.
futzpucker, this needs lyrics. This sounds like a Blue Nile kind of tune. You know them?

Well, you've done it again, beautiful, wistful, melancholy, and a few more adjectives....sorry, it's the mood I'm in. Or the medication.

Damn.
Thank you, Paul. I can't say I'm familiar with The Blue Nile. I'll have to do some
research.

No need to apologize for those very generous adjectives. They are well
appreciated. Thank you for listening.

Refreshed
This song epotomizes how I feel waking up after an afternoon nap in
the park. Upliftiung, but not overtly so; there's an element of
melancholy...well, maybe introspection is more what I mean. In any
event, I really liked this record.

like a swim
on a warm summer day. there's a purity of spirit that refresh's the soul.
you manage to make me forget all the nasty's in my life for a few
minutes. the synth work at the end is very cool. your selection of the
rhodes type sound fits this achingly well.

your always pointing out
the heart in my music... and it occures to me why...

your stuff is so full of heart... that it eclipses your technical excellence... there's a song by weather report "A Remark You Made" that leaves me in stunned silence or tears depending on the day... this speaks that same language to the deepest place...

sincere and humble bow

make sure you get some new listens. When someone can craft music that moves you so much that you can feel it your heart as a kind of welcome pain, then, that person was truly born to be a musician. Thank you.
